With a tradition of great American music in mind, Memphis Audio builds these speakers to reproduce every song with authenticity and impressive detail.
Great factory replacements
Memphis Audio's MS42 4" 2-way car speakers will handle up to 40 watts RMS for solid enjoyment of your favorite tunes. Their carbon fiber woofers make powerful replacements for low-functioning factory speakers, delivering strong performance with both accuracy and gusto. The aluminum tweeters give you crisp, soaring highs.
You know the M Series speakers are standouts because Memphis Audio equips them with external crossovers for the best sound possible in your car. And thanks to Memphis Audio's unique MClip mounting solution, you can securely clip the crossover onto the back of the speaker basket for a space-efficient installation.

Tweeters: The aluminum dome tweeters swivel, so they can be aimed for optimum imaging.
Crossover: The crossovers are separate components with 8" output wires attached. The tweeter output level can be changed from flat to -3 dB by moving a jumper pin inside each crossover. The inputs are screw terminals that will accept bare wire or spade connectors up to 0.25" wide. The output wires have quick slides attached that easily connect to the terminals on the woofers and on the wire from the tweeters. The crossover dimensions are:
- Width: 1¾"
- Height: 1⅛"
- Length: 2¾" (3⅝ including wire)
M-Clip: The crossovers can be mounted to the back of the speaker magnets, or elsewhere, using the M-Clip brackets. When mounted to the speakers, the crossover adds approximately ⅜" to the depth and 1¼" to the width of one side of the magnet.
